Tiki Oasis, is the original and largest Tiki event in the world and features in five nights and four days:  live music, dance, djs, marketplace vendors, fashion shows, costume contests, poolside entertainment, miss Tiki Oasis contest, car show, kids activities, art exhibit, plus top experts giving educational presentations on everything from cocktails and food, art, architecture, pop culture history, and tiki carving!

As always at Tiki Oasis, the event is all about the Tiki lifestyle. In addition, every year, the event explores a theme which adds dimension or explores a different aspect of Popular Culture tangential to Tiki. 

“Catch the New Wave!” is an obvious nod toward Surf music, while “New Wave” is a blast from the early 1980s. In the 1980s, simultaneous to New Wave, was the “Second Wave” in the swell of Surf Music history, the charge was mainly led by Los Angeles bands like Agent Orange, Jon & the Nightriders, The Insect Surfers, or the gimmicky Surf Punks. At Tiki Oasis 2019 we present acts that relate to 1980s New Wave with a surf or exotica twist, “Second Wave” Surf music, and a few original “New Wave”-ers to create a totally radical weekend that will leave you stoked.

MORE ABOUT TIKI OASIS
Tiki Oasis was conceived in 2000 as a fundraiser to support the rehabilitation of the mid-century Palm Springs Caliente Tropics Motel which attracted a small gathering of tikiphiles. The event, which moved to San Diego in 2006 and has grown to include two locations, three hotels, over 15 seminars, 100 vendors, numerous sponsors, a slew of talent which is enjoyed by over 3000 attendees.

Tiki Oasis is a family produced Polynesian Pop lifestyle weekender which takes place in Southern California each August, is the largest tiki gathering in the world and the only event of its kind on the West Coast. Each year Tiki Oasis presents a different theme which explores, celebrates, and preserves mid-century aesthetics via entertainment, fashion, food, drink, and education while showing its relevance in contemporary lifestyle. Tiki Oasis attendees experience four-plus days of live and dj music sets, symposiums, book signings, marketplace shopping, art, burlesque, comedy, vintage cars, mixology, fashion, and events for kids and tweens.
